      Monday night visit
      A quieter crowd that's definitely female heavy so I guess that's the Monday crowd.

      Sparky's Delight
      My partner and I travel to San Antonio at least once a year, but have never ventured outside the Riverwalk. Bored with the same ol', we decided we wanted something beside Bonham. After reading several reviews, I thought this would be the place to at least start. We weren't disappointed. We only left when it was time for some grub to soak up the alcohol. The bartenders are friendly and the layout is roomy with a bar on the patio. I hate to drive when I am drinking, so we decided to take public transit from the Riverwalk. The bus stopped right at the bar. SCORE!! A cab back to the hotel was only $10 (public transit doesn't run that late). We really enjoyed ourselves. We are going back to San Antonio again this coming weekend and plan to hit Sparky's again! You should too!!

      An SA Gay Pub Must See!
      This pub is definitely within my top 3 gay places in S.A.. Sparky's is clean and nicely set up. They play awesome music, but there is no dance floor. But, that doesn't stop most people from enjoying themselves. Weekends it gets packed, so arrive a little earlier. Weekdays not so much. Great place to meet out of town guests or any friends for that matter. I love Sparky's!

      this place has changed since opening
      I went there duing Fiesta and it seems to have turned to a mostly lesbian bar. Nothing against lesbians but if I wanted to hang with them I'd go to a lesbian bar, oops, that's Sparky's! SA needs some MEN's bars! Another Fiesta and man this place is LESBO city

      Only a 21&up bar. No dance floor. i understand its a pub but I've been to a pub where there is a dance floor. Free to enter! Only been on saturdays and sundays. Non-smoking bar, except the patio. Music is good but remember homos, no dance floor:(

      Great New Club in SA
      This is a place that was needed in SA. Friendly staff - Roger is a jewel. Witty, friendly, and good lookin'. Sparky's is now a must visit in SA.

      Great Gay Pub!
      This pub is fairly new to San Antonio (opened in January 2010) but is a great place to hang out. Best time is weekday nights because Saturday and Sunday - it is packed! Go on a Monday or Tuesday and have a great time!

      Friendly retreat
      Sparky's is not your ordinary Gay Bar. In a sensible atmosphere the crowd isn't overbearing, and the staff are friendly. This place can be enjoyed by the the gay and straight crowd. A vafriety of Music is played and not to loudly. I would recomend this place to anyone.

      A touch of class and atmosphere
      Thank you for a place where a 40 ish. fashionable implant from Los. Angeles can make an effort dress up and avoid the cattle call! Sparky's is HOT. Love the the layout Love the Music, People, overall atmosphere. I feel i can have a conversation in style while still checking out the guy who just walked in.
